This was Jack's third attempt at this mountain. The previous two times he was turned back because of snow. There is a YouTube movie of the attempt in October, 2007 here youtube.com/watch?v=ojv76DrT8yw
Mt. Tom is 13,658 ft. and located in the Sierras, just West of Bishop, CA. It is a predominant sight from highway 395, especially as one drives up or down the hill just North of Bishop. The climbing route via Horton Lake is not technically difficult but Mt. Tom is not a walkup either. Enjoy the movie!
